Same Stuff. Another Period. Returns to Your Screen January 23.

The Bellacourts are coming back to Comedy Central with the same venom, greed, stupidity, and corruption that viewers have come to love to hate in what is becoming a featured hit of the Comedy Central network.

 

The Newport, Rhode Island’s first family of the Gilded Age is returning with the third season premiere of Another Period on Tuesday, January 23 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.

So what is the plot “Another Period”?

The TV series follows the lives of the obscenely rich Bellacourt family and their many servants in turn-of-the-century Rhode Island. Co-creators Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome lead an all-star cast – including Michael Ian Black, David Wain, Christina Hendricks, Jason Ritter and Paget Brewster – in this historical satire about narcissistic aristocrats and the poor souls in their employ.

The press statement reads: The third season of the turn-of-the-century historical and satirical scripted series, directed by Jeremy Konner and executive produced by Ben Stiller’s Red Hour, follows the fifth season premiere of Drunk History

If you want to play catch-up or find out what the fuss is about before January 23, you can view the previous seasons on Comedy Central cc.com and the Comedy Central App.

Political and Perfect Timing

In the upcoming season, the apropos Bellacourt sisters Lillian and Beatrice played by Leggero and Lindhome are fighting for suffrage in Congress, become some of America’s first female Olympic athletes, struggle with an opioid addiction and campaign to make America great again (1), for real.
